BENEFITING: Rebuilding Together NYC
ORGANIZER: Rebuilding Together NYC
EVENT DATE: Nov 06, 2016
I moved to New York in August 2015 from California. I had never been to New York prior to moving here. Initially I was a bit nervous and intimated about moving across the country to "The Big Apple". I had heard a few comments from other West Coasters about how different the people are, and that New Yorker's can sometimes not be as "friendly". I arrived to New York City and quickly learned that what I had heard was completely false. New York City is full of some of the nicest, most compassionate humans I have ever met, both the natives and transplants living here. I immediately fell in love with this city and its people. There is energy to this city that is like no other, there is openness and willingness to help others from the people living here that is like nothing I have ever experienced. My boss James Minella and his girlfriend, Laura Jackson are both involved in this amazing charity and have extended me the invite to help fundraise. I can’t think of a better way to contribute to my new home and community other than by supporting Rebuilding Together NYC – a nonprofit organization that directly helps low income home owners and nonprofit facilities by providing home repairs and home modifications. Your financial support for this great organization is the best motivation I can have to ensure that I cross the finish line on November 6th, knowing that Rebuilding Together NYC is in an even stronger position to help more of those so desperately in need. Thank you all for your support.
